Following the success of UNIQLO's first-ever Quebec location in downtown Montreal, the Japanese clothing retailer is set to open a new store in Cadillac Fairview Carrefour Laval. UNIQLO Laval will open at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 26.
The store will occupy 15,000 square feet of space.
Until the March 26 opening, customers will also be able to take advantage of a "click and collect" service for online orders at the new location from March 8 to 23.
"As we continue to follow the local guidelines of public health officials, we look forward to opening our second store in Quebec at Cadillac Fairview Carrefour Laval," Yuichiro Kaneko, CEO of UNIQLO Canada, said in a statement.
"With the continuous demand for UNIQLO from our customers, this new location in Laval will bring our functional and thoughtfully created LifeWear apparel to more Canadians."
LifeWear is UNIQLO's signature line of streetwear.
The Laval store will be UNIQLO's 14th in Canada. It follows the opening of the Montreal flagship store — the retailer's largest in Canada — in the Eaton Centre.
UNIQLO's second Quebec location will be located at 3003 boul. le Carrefour, Laval.
It will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

So excited, in fact, that customers and staff have reported that waits to get into the store — the first in Quebec and the largest in Canada — can range from 30 minutes to three hours.
Content creator @Mangozzle posted an Instagram story on opening day showcasing a long — albeit, socially distanced — line stretching from Rue Saint-Catherine and Boulevard Robert-Bourassa all the way down the block to Robert-Bourassa and de Maisonneuve.
